The food offered here is quite less than the food offered at other restaurants in this 'chain' such as sushi Zanmai where beef teriyaki steak and yasai croquettes are in the menu. I suggest not ordering the normal cream croquette as it has very little taste and is filled with corn. For dessert I recommend the ice cream with chocolate... More

A family favourite, Rakuzen has many branches and this one in SJ delivers a good experience every time. The menu is wide enough, the set meals are good value for money, service is efficient.

This is a Rakuzen that moved from the SS12 location opposite SJMC. There are more tables and space here. The menu is exactly the same and the quality of the food is the same, i.e. very good. However, the sashimi portions are definitely smaller and seemed to be fewer slices in the lunch sets. The sushi rolls also seemed smaller... More

I enjoyed the dinner very much with their excellent services, as I encountered some food problems - the prawn sashimi wasn't very fresh but they advised me to change it to the other dishes with graceful attitude. Services are up to standard and the food is yummy. Though the price might be higher from other japanese restaurants but they serve... More

Rakuzen Japanese restaurant is a must for anyone who loves really fresh seafood! In the heart of the bustling SunwayPyramid Mall, this modestly priced eatery provides a zen garden spot to relax and enjoy your meal. Sparse decor and quick service also make for a pleasant experience. I had a combo plate with a number of Japanese specialties that come... More

We first visited Rakuzen at the SS15 venue across from the Sime Darby Medical Center years ago. Its outlets have branching out in the Klang Valley. Few years ago, it set its second outlet in Subang Jaya at the Empire Shopping Gallery. We visit that as well. Please to said the quality and services are equally good. Now the old... More

This outlet serves halal Japanese food that's reasonably close to the real stuff. Quite well patronised.

We went to Empire Subang outlet for dinner. I ordered half roll of sashimi but the salmon were not fresh. The serving of chicken was generous but overall, I felt I have tasted better quality Japanese food for the same price. Service was slow for the crowd size. Not really impressed.
